    Please help me in resoving the issues I'm facing with Toad.
    I'm using Toad ver. for Oracle 10g on Windows 7 Professional.
    Oracle 10g and Toad both are installed on same machine.
    My problem is that after startup of Toad when I try to establish a connection to the oracle it gives me the error
    Can't initialize OCI. Error -1
    I did some googleing to resolve this issue and tried following solution
    1. Added ocidll=C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\BIN\oraclient10.dll parameter to startup, in the shortcut of the Toad.
    2. Added ocidll=C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\BIN\oci.dll parameter to startup, in the shortcut of the Toad.
    I tried with both the options mentioned above seperately, but that couldn't help.
    Can sombody please help me to resolve this issue.
    Thanks in Advance.
